mmmm yummy recipes, will be checking those out later.
MISSRUTH has the answer. And don't worry they are bigger crumbs, your dish will just have a "rustic" look.
btw I am old enough to me your grandma, so don't get grossed out, but you look great! good job.

Take a couple slices out of a bag of bread. Let them sit out for a few hours. If the recipe is for tonight, take them out in the morning before you go to work. Or set them out, the night before and give them a good 24 hours to go stale. The ends (or commonly called "the heels") of the bread work good for this.
So when they've dried out some, tear them up in smaller pieces and then rub those smaller pieces between your two hands. Sort of like, if your hands were cold and you were rubbing them together to get warm.
I don't have a food processor but I make breadcrumbs like this all the time. If I think the crumbs need to be a little "crisper", I'll put them in a non-stick pan (no oil or anything, just crumbs in a pan) on a medium heat on the stove for a few minutes (stirring now and then so they don't burn) til they brown up some.

@graham cracker- Would that kind of thing work for, say these recipes? and others like it? I don't have a processor or anything and always though bread crumbs would be much smaller than what you could just rip up with hands.
Simple. Put a slice or two of ww bread in a food processor or little coffee grinder. I keep a container in the freezer.
If you don't have a processor you can let the slices dry out a bit and crumble them. I never buy bread crumbs.

So I don't know if anyone here can help me out, but I cannot seem to find whole wheat bread crumbs anywhere. I've checked at Walmart, Econo, and our local small grocery store and all anyone has are the enriched kind... Not sure what to do cuz i'd like to try out some recipes that use them, but don't want to bread something with simple carbs, you know? I'd even settle for non 100% whole wheat at this point
